Recall Action Commencement Date 3/10/2013
Responsible Entity Medtronic Australasia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue Medtronic has identified that a small subset of 2090 Programmers have an incorrect software configuration for the country in which that are physically located. When a programmer is manufactured, it is configured for the region in which it will be located. In this way, Medtronic is able to differentiate the timing of software updates across different regions of the globe. Through the investigation of this issue, a small subset of programmers have been determined to be physically located in a country outside of the region for which they are configured.
Recall Action Recall for Product Correction
Recall Action Instructions Medtronic is requesting users to return affected devices for re-configuration. Medtronic representative will contact customers to coordinate the servicing and return of the programmer.
